Large Engraved Ginger Jar - decorative, detailed, handcrafted, porcelain vessel

$1,450

About

This beautifully detailed large porcelain vessel was created by ceramicist Loren Kaplan. ‘Ginger jars’ were first used in China thousands of years ago as a means of storing and shipping precious spices. Ginger became a popular spice in the western world and so jars shipped from the Orient were known simply as ‘ginger jars.’ “My work resonates with light, sound, pattern and texture… I make vessels because containers are about potential. My focus is on the space in between, defined spaces of emptiness making room for something to be held.” Loren Kaplan She earned a BFA from the University of Witwatersrand, Johannesburg and studied at the Kim Sacks School of Ceramics. In 1995 she established a studio and began a teaching career with the Visual Arts and Crafts Academy in Johannesburg. Kaplan has exhibited regularly in South Africa and Toronto and received numerous awards. Her work is held in many private collections and in the South African Constitutional Court Art Collection.
